I started doing LTCs & Artist Trading Cards in August of 2008.

I hand carve rubber stamps and some of my cards will use images from those. I am a beginner in watercolor arts and some other media. All of my cards are handmade. They are not "prints".
My original watercolors are here at Art In Hand.

Salome


This image is from the "Salome" art piece by Alfons Mucha.
The card was done for The Mucha Challenge swap by The Red Cat.
Limited Edition of only 10 cards each card is watercolored by hand.

The image didn't stamp well on watercolor paper so I had to fill in the lines of the image to get a crisp image... but I am glad I used the watercolor paper. The vivid translucent watercolors make the card my favorite.

Thank you :)
I regret that I don't ave any extras this time. The last three swaps I was in found me pressed for time so I only did enough for the swap (or a round number close to it). These were very difficult and then I took a lot of time in the watercolor. I wish I had more to trade and share because they may be my most beautiful card ever.

The colors are very translucent and much more vivid than the scanned image here on the blog.

Thanks again :)
